The BAD DATA Podcast

A weekly tour of bad data storytelling, stories about data that’s bad, and other things involving “data” and “bad.”



Do you remember your high school classmates that copied your algebra homework because Math? Apparently those folks are now professional armchair epidemiologists, statisticians, politicians, policy makers, economists, and “researchers.”

If you’re tired of trying to ELI5 how science and math work, this is your weekly therapy call. Each week, BAD DATA reviews data stories that have been told horribly wrong, digs into the sourcing of misinformation data memes, and occasionally discusses data that actually shines a light on things gone bad or horribly wrong.
